A reconstruction of Abel Tasman’s course

Linked below is a new reconstruction of Tasman’s course, by Dave Horry

This reconstruction uses all spatial references in Abel Tasman’s journal to build a complete turn by turn course of his progress up the coast of New Zealand.

Information from the journal used to make this reconstruction includes: observed latitude, bearings to features, distances to features, depth, direction sailed, and distance sailed (since the previous day)
